Synopsis

Comic drama Characters: 1 male, 6 female Unit set. Tood, Weetsie and Sybill are brides in rural Louisiana in 1943. Each married a Cliffert brother. The men are off to war and a local news story about these young wives keeping the home fires burning intrigues Henry Luce. He decides that they belong on the cover Life Magazine and assigns Kate Miller to the story. She has been covering the war in Europe and, though she views doing a "women's piece" as a career set back, she accepts because it will be her first cover story. Kate spends a week with the Cliffert women and her haughty urban attitude gives way to sympathy as she begins to understand them while coming face to face with her own powerlessness in a man's world. Filled with charm and fun, The Cover of Life is a deeply affecting story about the struggle for self worth. "The kind of roles actresses dream of. Robinson's writing has a warm, rural flavor and [the] conflicts are laced with a poignant urgency." Variety. "Vivid." Newark Star Ledger. "Stirring and funny." Teaneck Daily Record.
